Title:
As a Basis for Discussion
Creator:
Crick, Francis, 1916-2004
Date:
23 February 1956
Description:
In this conceptual outline, addressed to James Watson and Leslie Orgel, Crick considered how a genetic code that is non-overlapping--i.e., in which discrete units of nucleotides, whether triplets or quadruplets, do not share nucleotides with each other--might still have enough built-in restrictions to code for only twenty amino acids during protein synthesis.
